Erries has no particular reputation at present

Hello everyone, my name is Errol. I'm a 20 year old swiss/american and I moved to Switzerland last year. Up until now I've been taking courses and doing my best to learn french. Even though I am Swiss, having spent 19 years in America has made it hard to come here and find work.
A lot of apprenticeships ask for papers and documents that I don't have since I didn't go to school here or anything and it seems that a native swiss will get the job before a "foreigner." So my question to you guys is, is it worth looking into apprenticeships or would it be easier to find a job that I can use my english with? Any help with this matter is much appreciated. Thank you .

Re: Intern/apprenticeships

Welcome Erries.

First you need to get your French up to a good enough standard to explain what you learnt at school. You should apply now for an apprenticeship starting August 2012. You have some American qualifications? You can get some help & advice from cantonal offices. The local ORP unemployment office can give you more information.



There are very few jobs here where only fluent English is required.
